it is illogical to jump off a cliff, unless that is the point and i have a good reason

"It is illogical to jump off of a cliff, unless that is the point and I have a good reason."

That makes absolutely no sense. You don't back up that claim with any sort of argument; this is assumption at its finest.

What do you mean by illogical? Jumping off of a cliff is a real action, thus, it is logical. You can see it happening due to light, you know it happens by seeing it, and logical gravity pulls you down as you jump off of the cliff. The only way jumping off of a cliff could be illogical is if it were some sort of illusion, and nothing were to happen if you jumped off of a cliff. If you do jump off of a cliff, and nothing happened, that would be illogical. That would mean that there is a cause, and there isn't an effect, meaning there's no logic.

The cliff scenario plays out like this:
Cause: Jumping off of the cliff
Effect: Falling down into the surface of the Earth

And if cause+effect=logic, this means that jumping off of a cliff is logical. And no, you do not have a good reason to support your claim, I do.

Thank you for posting.

so its logical to jump of a cliff then? why dont you do it when you are there? fool

I have no intention of jumping off of a cliff, thank you.

I don't have to experience something firsthand to know it's logical. I have never been to Japan, yet I still acknowledge the fact that there is a Japan. I know it exists because of images taken in Japan, Japanese people that come to the U.S, and lessons from history.

Therefore jumping off of a cliff is logical, since the same logic applies to both. I've fell from some sort of high heights before, which is just a less painful version of jumping off of a cliff.

All PRO has provided me with in Round 4 is "wauw." No argument, no rebuttal, just "wauw."

We are currently at an impasse.

Well, this is the end of the debate, folks. I have provided key reasoning for my argument and CON hasn't. CON also gave up trying to debate at all by Round 4 and so on.
